Le jardin olfactif

When I visited the 'scents courtyard', the olfactory garden wasn't quite finished yet (the second photo shows a designer's view of it, as it should be once finished and it probably already is!) It is located in what was once Récollets garden and was designed by Nicolas Gilsoul. Naturally, I shall return there later!

Lorsque j'ai visité la cour des senteurs, le jardin olfactif n'était pas encore tout à fait terminé (la seconde photo montre un dessin d'architecte des lieux tels qu'ils seront une fois terminés et ils le sont probablement déjà). Le jardin se trouve dans l'ancien jardin des Récollets et a été créé par Nicolas Gilsoul. Bien évidemment, je vais y retourner !

Those stairs look so harsh, but once the landscaping matures, they will blend in nicely.

That's going to be a very special place...I'm guessing that the garden will contain flowers used in creating the various scents. Oui?

Once finished and matured, I bet this will be a sensory delight. I'll look forward to your revisit.

It doesn't look like it'll take too long for the design to be complete Ciel, as you say it might already be..looking forward to your return visit already :)

That sounds like an interesting place! I'm sure you'll be sniffing out some pics there in no time. : ) Looking forward to seeing an update.

This garden is going to be beautiful. The angles of the stairs and paving will be great once it fills out.

Oh definitely worth a revisit! It looks like it will be (may already be!) very beautiful:)

A very topical subject as the marriage bill is being debated this week in Parliament. For some reason my previous post didn't appear, lets hope this one works.
